8 foods I never eat

I know 80 20 rule eat healthily 80% of the time!



I firmly believe that all foods are OK in moderation, and this is largely based on not having ‘being healthy’ become something that feels a chore. You should never feel you are missing out on the things you really enjoy. But as a nutrition professional, and a nutrition coach there are a number of things that I NEVER eat.

1 Low fat/ reduced fat foods/ diet foods

These foods are, by definition, very highly processed. Where fat is taken out of a food, what nearly always goes in instead is either sugar or artificial sweeteners. The idea that fat is bad or leads to weight gain has now been acknowledged as being entirely wrong. We now know that sugars (and excess starchy carbs) are what mostly leads to weight gain and keep you craving sweet things. Many artificial sweeteners aren’t great for gut health either. I’d far rather stick to the natural, full fat version.
